    I did hear that parents were taking their kids to the malls instead to go from store to store. I figured there would be a lot this year mainly because the weather here has been so warm, yesterday it was 74 degrees.

    But it was like a ghost town.

    We had crap ton of kids this year.
    Got together with friends and pitched in on candy.
    Spent $70 the first time and that went within two hours.
    Then we went back and bought $30 more.

    We were trying to make it last but they kept comming.
    Plus the dude across the way spent $5,000 to decorate his
    house and do a mini haunted house in the backyard.
    I guess the word got around.

    HUH! They arrested a child molester in the county next to me last night.
    He had a haunted house set-up in his back yard!
    I don't know what caused the arrest, probation violation probably. :2guns:

    A million in our neighborhood. We didn't pass out candy. We took our kids around. (Yes, it does take both parents when you have four kids!) It was packed. We live in "snob knob" in our town, which isn't saying much bc it is such a very rural community. But people drive in from all over to trick-or-treat in our neighborhood. It's like a high school reunion for my husband, who grew up in this town. The kids' buckets weighed about 5 pounds apiece. A couple houses pass out full-size candy bars. My favorite parts are seeing all the costumes, and picking up some dirt on hubby, who is suspiciously closed-mouthed about his teen years.
